    My new motor ate up a thrust bearing... The engine shop said the torque converter was too tight against the crank... But when i was bolting the flex plate to the TC i remember being able to spin the TC... plus i drove the truck so that says that everything was suppose to be right... If the TC wasnt pushed back into the pump then i wouldnt of been driving anywhere.... So anyway the engine shop said there might be too much fluid pressure... pushing the TC against the crank therefore wiping the thrust bearing out....

    Well the engine shop fixed the thrust bearing... but what should be my next move? i dont want to have to pull the motor again to fix another thrust bearing... hook me up thx.

    A T/C that is ballooning well cause this. The other thing is a pinched tranny line causing too much pressure which will cause forward movement of the T/C.
